The Vietnam Sports Administration has named 36 sports and games that will be featured in the SEA Games 31. Four more will be added later.

The events will be divided into three groups: one for athletics and aquatics; another for gymnastics, rowing, football, shooting, weightlifting, and martial arts; and the third for dancing, chess, Vovinam and e-sports.
